Zambia should keep mineral royalties capped at 7.5% in the 2020 budget to safeguard the health of the mining sector and promote additional investment, the Chamber of Mines said on Tuesday. The mining body said in proposals submitted to the finance ministry that the 2019 mining tax regime had raised the tax burden on mines to unsustainable and uncompetitive levels. "If the 1.5% increment on each band of the sliding scale is to be maintained, the maximum rate should be capped at 7.5%, for an LME copper price equalling or exceeding US$7,500/tonne," the Chamber of Mines said.

Colombia is looking to become a notable producer of copper within the next few years, the head of the national mining agency said, in a bid to diversify its mining output without neglecting production of coal and gold. Mining in Colombia has historically been focused on large coal mines along its northern coast and relatively small scale gold and emerald operations in the Andes. "We have the potential, but we're an unexplored country in terms of copper," said agency president Silvana Habib in an interview on Thursday.

TORONTO, June 24, 2019 /CNW/ - First Quantum Minerals Ltd. ("First Quantum" or "the Company") (FM.TO) announced today that the first shipment of copper concentrate from Cobre Panama has left port. This shipment is the first from the operation and a significant milestone of the ongoing ramp-up. Cobre Panama is the Company's newest operation located in the district of Donoso, Colon province, in the Republic of Panama, which commenced production earlier in the year. The Missy Enterprise (a Panama flagged vessel), departed the Punta Rincon port at Cobre Panama on June 19, 2019 with a total load of 31,377 wet metric tonnes of copper concentrate as per the Captain's draft survey. The next vessel, the Clarke Quay, has already docked at the Cobre Panama port and will be loading approximately 44,000 wet metric tonnes of copper concentrate over the next few days.
Zambia will fine and break ties with mining firms that fail to operate according to the southern African country's laws, President Edgar Lungu said on Thursday, escalating a dispute with India-listed Vedanta. Vedanta is fighting Zambia's decision last month to name a provisional liquidator to run its Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) business and is seeking international arbitration. Zambia, Africa's second-largest copper producer, says KCM has breached the terms of its licence.
LUSAKA/LONDON/TORONTO (Reuters) - Zambia has no plans to seize the assets of Quantum Minerals Ltd and the copper producer intends to stay in the country despite the government's move to wrest control of a rival miner, government and industry sources told Reuters. Canadian-listed First Quantum has looked on nervously as the Zambian government appointed a provisional liquidator to run Vedanta's Konkola Copper Mines (KCM), claiming KCM has breached the terms of its license. The move has unnerved international miners concerned about rising resource nationalism in Zambia and neighboring countries.
Moody's Investors Service ("Moody's") has today downgraded to Caa1 from B3 the corporate family rating (CFR), to Caa1-PD from B3-PD the probability of default rating (PDR) and to Caa1 from B3 the senior unsecured rating of First Quantum Minerals Ltd (FQM). "Social risk considerations were a key driver of this rating action, which incorporates the increasingly difficult operating environment in Zambia with the proposed introduction of a non-refundable sales tax leading to a downward adjustment of our projections for FQM. Lower forecasted profitability and cash flow generation from the two Zambian copper mines will prevent FQM from meaningful deleveraging over the next 12-18 months despite the ramp up of production at the Cobra Panama mine", says Sven Reinke, Senior Vice President and Moody's lead analyst for FQM.
Canadian miner First Quantum Minerals said on Wednesday it had "fully complied" with local rules in operating Cobre Panama, one of the region's largest copper mines, after Panama's president-elect said he would review the company's contract.

Panamanian President-elect Laurentino Cortizo said on Tuesday his government would review a mining contract awarded to a subsidiary of Canada's First Quantum Minerals, casting a cloud of uncertainty around a key project for the firm. While the new government values the security of contracts, "the company has to respect that we have the right as Panamanians to review clause by clause," Cortizo, who takes office on July 1, told reporters. A spokesman for First Quantum Minerals did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
LUSAKA/JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A court hearing between Vedanta and the government of Zambia over control of its Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) business was adjourned on Friday until June 4. The government is pressing for the liquidation of KCM which it has accused of breaching its operating licence. The company faces a lawsuit in the English courts over allegations KCM polluted the land of nearly 2,000 Zambian villagers.
Zambia plans to strip Vedanta-controlled Konkola Copper Mines (KCM) of its mining licence and bring a new investor into the operation, in a move likely to stoke international miners' concerns about rising government intervention in the sector. Zambian President Edgar Lungu announced the plan on Monday, which his spokesman said followed a number of breaches of the terms of the licence, without giving details. Zambia, Africa's second-biggest copper producer, has also proposed tax changes that Lungu says he will push through, despite opposition from international miners which say they will deter investment that Zambia desperately needs.
